2018 Isle of Man TT Race Winners’ Payout – One of the most popular posts of the last year on this blog was the Isle of Man TT – Race Winners Payout so with the start of the Road Racing Season less that two weeks away from and TT fever starting to build I thought I would update the post for 2018 – and add a little more information to cover more than just the TT Senior Race.
But one of the most discussed topics is how much do these guys / girls get for winning the TT? You might be surprised, but one thing that is very important; for the majority – if not all the competitiors – it isn’t about the cash – it’s about the prestige.
The Collector does just that – collects sets, puts them away somewhere safe and then, maybe, one days sells them for a profit – or at least hopes to.
Then you have the Builder – they tear the box open, tip out the contents and have fun building up whatever was inside.
I’m a bit of both- collecting and building. Some sets I put away, some I build and some I buy a pair of, one to build, one to collect.
This set : 75885, the Lego Speed Champions Ford Fiesta M-Sport WRC is one such set I doubled on. Why? Because I really wanted to build one and then I though it’s only £12.99 and there are an awful lot of both Ford and Lego enthusiasts so it would do no harm to buy a second and keep it pristine. Who knows someday it might be worth a bit more?
